Revival Files: The Troubles of Sir Matt

 Total Cost: $4
 I was not down with the bell sleeves and the nun neckline on this dress when I bought it. But with a few snips here and  there and an added extra inch on the hem it became quite the little gem. But that's not what I really want to talk about you know. What I really want to talk about is what's been on Sir Matt's mind lately. 

Sir Matt: "Sweetie there's been a lot on my mind lately."
Me: "You wanna talk about it."
Sir Matt: "Yeah"
Me: "Okay what's up"
Sir Matt: "The prices of snow cones have been going up lately"
Me: (wondering where the many ways this conversation could go) "Uh-huh."
Sir Matt: "Well and I think they're just not doing enough."
Me: "Okay..."
Sir Matt: "Like if I had my own snow cone store I'd have a sign that says, " If there isn't sugar dripping off of your snow cone when we're done with us, then you come and tell us and we'll give you a lot more sugar."
Me: "Wow that sounds like a really long sign."
Sir Matt: "Yeah. So well..."
Me: "yeah."
Sir Matt: "All of this thinking about snowcones made me think....We should open up our own snow cone shop!"
Me: "Ohhh..."
Sir Matt: "And we'll give them all the sugar they want! And be more expensive than all the others!"
Me: "But you were just complaining about the snow cone prices."
Sir Matt: "Business is business Sarah."

My life is good....rrrrreeal gooood (name that movie).

So what do you think we should name our never-to-be snow cone shack?!


  1. I love what you did to that dress, the pattern is so pretty!
    Also, I'd totally go to your snow cone shack, even though it's more expensive.

  2. Nachoooooo! quoting that movie is always applicable.

    I like the dress! Maybe this is just some childhood fantasy of owning a snow cone shop that he is finally voicing?

  3. Nacho Libre.

    And that conversation is cute.

  4. OH! And I friggin' love this dress now!

  5. You are my hero! Love what you did with the dress. The pop of yellow is perfect. :)

  6. I think this is my favorite Revival Files yet. Love this dress.

  7. Very cute! I like the fishtail braid, too. Have you done a tutorial on adjusting necklines? I'd like to learn how that's done.

    <3 jen @ stuffjendid

  8. Jen I haven't done that yet. I'll make sure to do that too. It's actually really easy!

  9. Sir Matt's Snow. We'll be loyal patrons. as long as he doesn't jack the prices up too much.

    PS. Harris can't stand snow cone places because they are making tons of money selling ice and sugar.

  10. Love the print of the dress. And I'm also digging the braid!

  11. Love the braid! And that dress is great. Good job!

  12. I'm always amazed by your revivals because it's something I could never figure out how to do. Have you considered selling them?

  13. That peep of yellow just makes my day.

  14. oh my goodness you're too cute! i can't get enough!

  15. When will you post again ? Been looking forward to this !

  16. Nacho! Your revival/finding skills ARE SO GREAT.

    Save me a piece of that corn!
